PILnet (then Public Interest Law Institute) and Jagiellonian University, edited by Leah Wortham and Daniela Ikawa, Krakow, 2010.
This book is a unique contribution to understanding the issues confronting law schools in Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union as they seek to ensure that their programs meet the needs of 21st century lawyers.
The book is unusual in two ways. First, the authors of the articles in the book are largely faculty at universities in the region. As noted in the preface, despite a plethora of initiatives to reform legal education in Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union, there has been little literature on the topic coming from the region itself. Second, the articles address structural issues as well as pedagogical ones. (Barbara Schatz, Clinical Professor of Law, Columbia Law School)Download
